Fun reading about a girl with little luck in her job or with boys who turns it around and makes her life what she wants it to be.

I loved this book! My favorite character was the gay psychic friend. I would love to see a sequel to this one. In fact, I will probably request it again at a later date to reread. But, until then, I wanted others to have the chance to read it. I'd say this is my favorite Red Dress Ink books so far.

This British based story line is a real winner, interesting plot line, well written and enough character depth to make you want to stay til the end. Think Bridget Jones' Diary goes government job.

Libby McIsaac has just caught her 13th bridal bouquet, and, at 33, she's lost faith in the idea that the guy who catches the garter might be her soul-mate--until Tim Kennedy catches the garter and her eye. She's a bit dismayed when she learns he already has a girlfriend, but she's more focused on her new job as a speechwriter for Clarice Cleary, Canada's minister of culture. Under Margo, the minister's vindictive tyrant of an assistant, the job is little more than a glorified secretary position, and the minister seems more concerned with her makeup than in the quality of her speeches. But Libby perseveres and finally convinces Clarice to allow her to write speeches, even though she's still expected to lug Clarice's purse around. And Libby soon has two men--the newly single Tim and a sexy British consultant named Richard--vying for her affections.

This book made me laugh!

What happens when a political wordsmith finds herself at a loss for words?

Libby McIssac is known for two things: catching bridal bouquets (her record's an even dozen) and having a way with words. Since the former isn't really something that looks good on a resume, it's a good thing she's been able to parlay the latter into a new career as a political speechwriter. But just as she's being careful to dot her i's, cross her t's and make her boss look like she knows something about . . . well, anything, Libby's world is turned upside down.

Libby just wants to write the speeches that'll make the whole world sing, or at least ones that will get her boss to remember her name correctly and stop using Libby as her coatrack at flashy events. But in Clarice Cleary's office there's only one belle of the ball, and it's the one reading the speeches -- not writing them. Enter a handsome British consultant -- a bit on the cagey side, perhaps -- who upsets the delicate chain of command around the office and somehow always gets what he wants, including Libby?

When a media leak of a big-time scandal sends everyone into a tailspin, Libby fears she may get caught in the cross fire. Cue the fake alliances, the secrets, the sex, the subterfuge, the hidden friendships: it's all there.

Welcome to the world of politics, where perception is everything, nothing is as it seems and the last thing you want is to be left speechless
